  • The journey takes at least 2 hours, the site is very nice and entertaining, exceeds recommended. I recommend to go by public transport because the parking lot is very small.

  • If you go, purchase the regular ticket and buy lunch inside. The hot dog is not good. It is still a zoo. Can be depressing to see all those caged animals :(
  • A really nice zoo, especially for what I was expecting. On par with US zoos. Not too exciting, just like any other zoo. It was cool seeing the Colombian native flora and fauna. A lot of the enclosures (lion, bear, Bengal tiger could have been much bigger. Employees and guards were very nice. Lots of taxis to grab outside the entrance.
  • Plenty of animals, beautiful landscape and decorations. It can take around 2 to 3 hours to see it all. It's really worthwhile if you visit Cali.
  • Rich in species and creatively organised. Great crowd
  • Beautiful. A true must-visit in Cali. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes (it is a bit big). They have a good snack and food offer in the zoo. Also, ask about special evening events. After you finish here, walk along the riverside to La Tertulia Church.
